About the book:
Patrick Modiano, La place de l’étoile, 1968
Born right after WWII, a French Jew finds himself tormented by hallucinatory thoughts of persecution, triggering a series of events that begin in Geneva, Switzerland…
La place de l’étoile is Patrick Modiano’s debut novel. Blending elements of fiction and reality together, it holds a special place in the creative and literary process that would later define the Modianesque style. The title itself is a play on word referring both to the traffic circle around the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and to the yellow star Jews had to wear in France under Nazi occupation.
Patrick Modiano was awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Literature for his contribution to the memory of occupied France.
